If you're going to flop, flop to the fullest.
That's the approach Brazilian soccer player Lucas Fonseca had Sunday. The Bahia center back took a dive for the ages in the club's contest against Flamengo.
After getting bumped by Fonseca, Flamengo forward Paolo Guerrero turned to take a swing at Fonseca. Although Guerrero never followed through with his punch, Fonseca found himself flying through the air as if Canelo Alverez had connected with a haymaker.
From there, Fonseca found himself headed to the sideline with his second yellow card of the match, as both players were booked for what happened. And with Bahia down a man, Flamengo was able to get a goal in the 74th-minute to pick up a 1-0 victory.
Maybe this will make him think a bit harder before his next dive. Or maybe it will just serve as inspiration for floppers across all sports.
